Hillcrest expansion tops March building starts in Sunnyside


Hillcrest's building expansion topped Sunnyside's new building starts for the month of March. Work has begun on the project with this retaining wall.

Most of Sunnyside's $3.8 million in new building valuation for the month of March originated from one project, Hillcrest Manor's new physical therapy wing.

The 16,000 square-foot addition, which will include 20 beds in addition to rehab areas, is valued at $3.5 million. Sunnyside city coffers garnered $24,315 in permit fees from the project.

Also in March, Sunnyside officials approved a new housing start in the 1400 block of West Madison Avenue. The single-family home is valued at $135,455 and generated $1,976 in permit fees for Sunnyside.

Other notable new starts last month included commercial tenant improvements in the 1100 block of East Yakima Valley Highway, valued at $195,000.

Also in March, Lower Valley Hospice received a thumbs up to convert a garage into office space at a valuation of $5,000.

Nearly a third of the 28 building permits approved by Sunnyside staff last month were for re-roofing projects.

Led by a $75,000 re-roofing for Bank of America, the nine projects had a combined valuation of a little more than $100,000.

For the month of March, Sunnyside received $32,158 in building permit fees.
